Special Assistant to CM on Information Dr Firdous Ashiq Awan on Thursday said that all notorious “thugs” have assembled under the umbrella alliance of PDM as this political cabal is vying for power to resume their spate of plunder.
The SACM reiterated the political thugs will face defeat in the presence of PM Imran Khan and credited the PTI government for not a corruption scandal during the two and a half years of the incumbent government. The PTI has set a new example of transparency and no one could dare of usurpation of resources, she added. The political scions should better recall the days when their daddies set corruption records and huge kickbacks were received. They raised minarets of corruption and every day was started with a new scandal, she regretted. Maulana also used to make hay while the sun shines, she added. On the other hand, the incumbent government has reined in corrupt and the country is moving forward because the trust of the investors has been fully restored, concluded the SACM.
Meanwhile, Special Assistant to CM Dr Firdous Ashiq Awan said that Punjab is witnessing significant progress and development in the field of information technology and the Punjab Information Technology Board (PITB) is playing a vital role in the creation of job opportunities for the youth.
The SACM was addressing a press conference along with Punjab Minister for Higher Education & Information Technology Raja Yasir Humayun at PITB Office Arfa Software Technology Park on Thursday.
Talking to media, Dr Firdous said the government has laid great emphasis on ‘e-Governance’ and is extensively using technology to improve efficiency and governance and ensure transparency and accountability. Providing support and creating a conducive environment for the IT and other related sectors has been among the top priorities of the government, she further said.
The Special Assistant said the government has established ‘e-Rozgaar’ centers across the province to enable the recent graduates to polish and monetize their skills and enhance their professional capabilities.
Dr Firdous said that ‘E-Building Plan’ project has been implemented in Punjab for ease of doing business under which plans for commercial, residential, industrial and semi-commercial buildings will be approved in 30 days. The Special Assistant said that opposition’s announcement for a ‘million march’ is not for the public but only to save its billions of dollars looted from the national exchequer. She said that PDM’s politics, ranging from resignation to long march, foreign funding case to rally against Israel, has now reached a dead end.
Dr Firdous said the Prime Minister’s announcement to telecast live proceedings of foreign funding case has deflated PDM’s balloon because everything will be exposed before the general public. She said the PTI has submitted the lists and receipts of its donors to the election commission now it is the opposition parties’ turn to reveal the source of their funds.
The SACM questioned where Fazl’s property – worth billions of rupees – came from, adding that the JUI-F
